    [8th September 2022 – Hong Kong] On the ground floor of The Fleming hotel in Wan Chai lives Osteria Marzia, a vibrant celebration of Italy’s coastal cuisine. On 8, 15, 22, and 29 September, OSTERIA POSITANO will pop up at Osteria Marzia, bringing the much-loved Amalfi Coast experience back to Hong Kong for a limited time as part of Black Sheep Restaurants’ 10-Year Anniversary Summer Festival celebrations. The themed pop-up first debuted at Tai Kwun Magistracy in April 2021, where guests were invited to embrace ‘la dolce vita’ by savouring delectable regional dishes from an exclusive ocean-inspired menu.

     

    This year, Osteria Positano returns to Osteria Marzia in style, offering an instant escape to the sun-drenched coast of Italy – perfect for those itching for their next adventure abroad. The venue will evoke warm nights in Amalfi, with its sun-dappled coves, picturesque assortment of colourful towns nestled into steep cliffsides, and restaurants and cafés brimming with freshly caught ocean produce. Served by a cast of gregarious Italian waiters, the traditional ocean-inspired menu celebrates the diverse cuisine found in the seaside regions of Italy, offering a mouth-watering assortment of dishes curated by the Osteria Marzia team led by Executive Chef Luca Marinelli.

     

    Savour a four-course Osteria Positano curated menu (HK$988+10% per guest with a total of ten dishes), with dishes designed to share family-style. Begin the meal the old-fashioned Italian way with an assortment of Antipasti, including Hamachi with cherry tomato, olive and basil, Tonno Affumicato or smoked baby tuna with bell peppers, and Insalata di Pomodori heirloom tomato and buffalo mozzarella with baby capers and basil. Primi consists of delectable pasta selections of Linguine with spanner crab, chilli, lemon and pangrattato, and Calamarata with Boston lobster and cherry tomatoes. Secondi dishes follow, a hearty assortment of larger dishes including Orata al Sale salt-baked sea bream with  oregano and mint salmoriglio, Caponata eggplant with cherry tomato, and Insalata Mista, a mixed leaves salad with agrodolce dressing. Conclude with Dolci of Baba al Rum with limoncello Chantilly, and Freshly Churned Gelato. The full Osteria Positano pop-up menu can be viewed HERE.

     

    Note to Editor: On the selected pop-up dates for Osteria Positano (8, 15, 22, and 29 September), the restaurant will serve only the exclusive pop-up menu. Osteria Marzia will continue operating normally on all other days of the month, serving a la carte and its usual lunch and dinner tasting menus by Chef Luca.

    ABOUT OSTERIA MARZIA

    Osteria Marzia is a vibrant celebration of the ocean’s bounty, taking its cues from the diverse cuisine of Italy’s scenic seaside regions. From citrus-laced crudos and handmade pastas imbued with maritime flavours to whole fish prepared with techniques passed through generations. Seasonal and locally sourced seafood forms the foundation of a light, bright contemporary menu inspired by sunny holidays spent in coastal Italy. At the heart of the lofty, maritime-themed dining room is a raw seafood counter displaying the fresh catch of the day, complemented by an enviable cellar composed of Southern Italian wines.

     

    ABOUT BLACK SHEEP RESTAURANTS

    Black Sheep Restaurants is one of those special movements that comes along once in a lifetime. It starts with an ideal, an ambitious dream to rewrite the rules and elevate the definition of what hospitality is. Founded in 2012 by Syed Asim Hussain and Christopher Mark, it is far more than just culinary prowess or accolades, it is a band of like-minded people, devotedly fixated on the dream to redefine what it means to be forerunners, paving the way for the new generation of hospitality.

     

    Since the scrappy beginnings of a single restaurant, the disruptive hospitality team has become synonymous with trailblazing, story-driven ideas, curating distinct dining experiences about a particular time, place, culture or cuisine. Now, with over 30 restaurants to date, critical acclaim has followed the movement, from receiving the world’s first and only MICHELIN-Star for a Punjabi restaurant with New Punjab Club, One Star for critically acclaimed BELON and successive nominations for Restaurateurs of the year.

     

    Black Sheep Restaurants expanded its experience with the development of its own proprietary food delivery service, GO, but what truly sets Black Sheep Restaurants apart and stokes the fire of perpetual progression is the innate ability to harness the intangible, to go up against the giants, to defy the odds and to do the exceptional.

     

    In 2020, Black Sheep Restaurants developed a COVID-19 Playbook, mapping out best-in-class practices for navigating their business in the wake of a global pandemic. The valuable resource was picked up globally by businesses and governments and translated into five languages.
